White House: Everything’s Fine in Iraq as Ramadi Falls

(Before It's News)

The White House dished out new happy talk Friday on Iraq as ISIS – or ISIL, if you like – forces seized Ramadi, a city of nearly one million people that is the capital of the country’s largest province, Anbar, which ISIS has mostly taken over.

But White House Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz had an alternate take from the alternate universe known as the West Wing:

ISIL’s momentum has indeed be blunted – it’s ability to mass and maneuver forces degraded, it’s leadership cells pressured or eliminated, it’s command and control and supply lines severed.

I’m glad ISIS’s momentum has been blunted, because if it wasn’t I guess they’d be in Cairo by now.

The consequences of President Obama’s decision to abandon Iraq and then fight ISIS with half measures continue to descend on Iraq. How sickening to hear again the names of cities where our troops bravely fought and died for victory, cities once again in the hands of the enemy.

Soon there will be serious consequences here. Every day ISIS is permitted to live is another day it has to plan large-scale attacks in the United States.

This country faces a dangerous foe. We can deal with the threat. But we won’t, and that’s going to hurt.
